Fans of the hit HBO series, The Last of Us, are in for a treat as season 2 of the show is confirmed to be in the works. However, the upcoming season will be filmed in a different location, moving from Alberta, Canada, to Vancouver, British Columbia. The move is made to follow the storyline of the second game, which takes place in Seattle. The decision to shoot in Vancouver is primarily due to its similarity to Seattle, allowing the production team to replicate the city’s look without filming in the actual location. The shift in filming location also confirms that the show will be diving straight into Part 2 of the game. Despite the move, the production will still benefit from Canadian tax breaks, making it a financially sound decision.
HBO Is Moving The Last of Us Series’ Season 2 To A New Place
While the location move offers no significant plot details, fans can expect the series to follow the storyline of the second game, which takes the characters on a journey from Seattle to Santa Barbara, CA. It remains to be seen whether the production team will be able to replicate Santa Barbara’s look in Canada, but with HBO’s budget, anything is possible.
As we await further updates on the series, fans eagerly anticipate the casting announcements, particularly for the role of co-main character Abby.
The show’s creators, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann promised that fans would see more infected in the second season, thanks to the bigger budget from HBO. Moving to a more urban environment, fans can expect to see more of the infected, making for a more intense viewing experience.
As production for season 2 of The Last of Us continues, fans can expect more updates on the show, casting decisions, and storylines. With the show’s creators promising more of what fans love and a move to a new location, it’s an exciting time for fans of the hit series.
